No singing in the back

United States: 46 people were injured when their bus rolled over as a result of their over-enthusiastic hymn-singing.

According to police, the passengers on the bus from Hyles-Anderson College -- a baptist school in Hammond, Ind. -- were singing and swaying on board the bus. Their swaying caused the bus to sway and tip over.

That's not why the bus tipped over. Baptist do not need to shut up Baptist are cooler than you know. Who cares if the sing really, really, really,really, really, really, really, really, really, really enthuistacly. They're doing it for God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would you rather have them singing songs with a ton of cuss words in it? Threy love God big deal.

Well in that case, we have to assume that it was not the work of Father Darwin, but that God so hated the singing that He tipped the bus over so they'd shut the fuck up.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
